Philadelphia is making the final push to try and convince Amazon to build its second headquarters in the city.

The deadline for cities to submit their proposals is Thursday.

City officials including Mayor Jim Kenney have taken to social media, highlighting the city's positives using the hashtag #Phillydelivers.

On Monday, city officials released a video to show that Philadelphia is a prime location, close to both New York and Washington D.C.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is also trying to entice Amazon, offering the company $7-billion in tax incentives.
